That's a known problem: it means that config.bat didn't have -kb in
your CVS/Entries file prior to the first "cvs update" (without -kb).
That's why the first "cvs up" did a P(atch) instead of U(pdate).  When
it tries to patch a file with DOS-style line-endings, the checksum
never works out due to EOL munging by the client (it blindly adds a CR
before each LF, even if there's already a CR).
